    +1 on Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

    Disintegration

    YoshimI Battles the Pink Robots

      Paul  Simon - Graceland

      Boston - First album

      MJ - Off the Wall

      Guns and Roses - Appetite for Destruction

       

      ----

      On a limb here, but the only other albums I liked all the way through that I still listen to often are

       

      Enya - First Album

      Moodswings - MoodFood  (Most have never heard of it, kind of a new age sound), and

      Vangelis - Direct, and Vangelis, Oceanic.

      The Plan '15 (big parts)→  Feb:  Va Beach Distance Series 50K (Set a PR)     /// April:  Hampton, VA 24 Hour Run for Cancer  (Goal: >80.1+Miles for a PR)  ///    "Run Hard, Live Easy."   ∞

        Yeah, I guess +1 for Appetite for Destruction. I've gone back and forth all day about it but if I were stranded on an island I would want it.

          Big +1 for Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms. Also like the picks for Boston, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd & Cars. Lots of great suggestions. A few more off the top of my head -

           

          Eagles - Hotel California

          Pink Floyd - Animals

          Rush - Permanent Waves

          Aerosmith - Toys in the Attic or Get your Wings

           

          Yeah, I'm old Big grin

          5K - 20:42 / 10K - 46:02 / 13.1 - 1:39:32 / 26.2 - 3:43:20

           

          PleasantRidge


            Tom Petty - Wildflowers

            Drive By Truckers - The Dirty South

            Alice In Chains - Dirt

            Modest Mouse - Good News For People Who Love Bad News

            Jamey Johnson - That Lonesome song

            +1 to Car Wheels and Disintegration

              Don't dig Animals.

              Love Aerosmith's first three albums. Pretty much a perfect trio.

              They were also my first concert back in the '75.

               

              I'd like to add:

               

              The Yes Album, Fragile, and Closer to The Edge as another perfect trio (Yes ---2nd concert!)

              Cool Jump Suit

                Van Halen I 

                Van Halen 5150

                 

                Both were great.  Even though there were two different leads.

                The kiss goodnight, it comes with me,
                Both wrong and right, our memories. 
                The whispering before we sleep,
                Just one more thing that you can't keep.

                Our favorite place we used to go,
                The warm embrace that no one knows.
                The lovin' look that's left your eyes,
                But I know in time we'll find this was no surprise.


                an amazing likeness

                  Eagles - Hotel California

                   

                   

                  Oh yes indeed, all good tracks, a comprehensive, enclosed album.  So my list has now grown to:

                   

                  Darkness on the Edge of Town -- Springsteen

                  Born to Run - Springsteen

                  Car Wheels on a Gravel Road - Lucinda Williams

                  Blessed - Lucinda Williams

                  London Calling - Clash

                  Eagles - Hotel California

                  Rumors - Fleetwood Mac

                  Meet the Beatles - Beatles

                  Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless

                    And by the way when I threw Yankee Hotel Foxtrot out there I knew it would probably be the most contemporary album in this thread...but a friend of mine pointed out earlier this week that it was released TWELVE years ago. Man did that make me feel old. Seems like just yesterday I saw them tour with this album!

                     

                    Seems Yoshimi was the same year? Not an album I would have picked, but respect. I have to be in a special mood for that one though.

                        Best Wilco album, IMO, is Summer Teeth. But YHT is just so GOOD from beginning to end.

                          Agreed, I prefer Summer Teeth...but, as you say, doesn't fit the criteria.

                           

                          And, perhaps, is the answer to your other question. Smile
